General, there have been 74 picks within the collection since Could thirteenth. Till the beginning of Royal Ascot on June twentieth, the collection was in revenue by 28.65 factors, nevertheless, after no winners by your complete week and a tough run till Wonderful Goodwood, the P&L dropped into the negatives.

Regardless of this, a revenue of 17.45 factors on the Ebor Pageant implies that The High Three, after almost 4 months, is in revenue by 3.585 factors.

That isn’t a formidable quantity, however revenue is revenue and hopefully, this type can proceed heading into the following few weeks.

So, with that in thoughts, listed here are in the present day’s three fancies.


1:50 Sandown – Indemnify @ 10/3 with William Hill – 2pt Win

The primary wager from Sandown Racecourse comes within the opening seven-furlong handicap and having seen loads of cash all week, in the present day might be the day for Indemnify to return to the winners’ enclosure at 10/3.

The four-year-old gray by Lope De Vega has raced 4 occasions this season, although his solely victory of the yr occurred with earlier coach Roger Varian at Sandown over a furlong additional than in the present day’s journey.

The gelding has raced as soon as over seven furlongs throughout his profession when second on the all-weather at Newcastle in a novice occasion crushed narrowly by Baltimore Boy.

Since then, connections opted to run him over longer distances and not too long ago, when racing over a mile on his final three begins, jockey Kieran O’Neill has persistently dropped him out in direction of the rear of the sphere, notably when fifth to the well-handicapped Perotto on secure debut for Alice Haynes within the Coral Problem Handicap at Sandown.

These techniques act as a distinction to his three-year-old season the place his greatest performances got here from outstanding positions.

Doubtlessly, you possibly can see a reversal in racing place in the present day to ship him right into a extra outstanding place from the beginning to be able to use his helpful stamina trait.


Off a aggressive mark of 91, Indemnify ran an attention-grabbing race at Sandown – a course he’s very aware of – 13 days in the past and if he can benefit from a possible lack of tempo within the contest, he might be the one to facet with.


2:25 Sandown – Midnight Mile @ 13/2 with William Hill – 1pt EW

As mentioned on Wednesday’s Ante-post Evaluation, regardless of the primary play of Astral Beau on the costs, Midnight Mile was additionally on my agenda for the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes and along with her nonetheless remaining within the race, she will get the nod at 13/2.

Having been along with her final trip at Haydock when third to Al Aasy within the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes, she carried out effectively beneath Oisin Orr for almost all of the competition earlier than failing to see out the total 10 furlongs.

In working, her final outing was a difficult contest as she sat extra prominently than her York victory two begins in the past and hit the entrance with two furlongs to go, so all Orr may do was press the button and see if she may stand up to 400 metres at prime velocity.

Delivered to perfection! 🏇@JimCrowley1978 gave favorite Al Aasy a peach of a journey to win the Group 3 Rose Of Lancaster Stakes @haydockraces 👏

Sadly, she didn’t and was handed by Al Aasy and El Drama, however in opposition to the extra skilled horses, she nonetheless ran a terrific race.

Again at a mile in the present day on rain-softened floor, she may get a pleasant tow into the race from Mysterious Love and Nibras Angel if connections revert to techniques and sit her in midfield.

If returning to her greatest, she might be a harmful proposition in receipt of 5 kilos from her elders, so with that in thoughts, I’ll be siding with Midnight Mile.


2:40 Beverley – Silky Wilkie @ 5/2 Basic – 2pt Win

The Beverley Bullet features a area of simply seven runners this yr and sadly for readers of Wednesday’s Ante-Publish Evaluation, Rage Of Bamby shouldn’t be one among them.

I can solely apologise for her absence, however as a substitute, Silky Wilkie appears like an excellent substitute to be with at 5/2.

The four-year-old by Mehmas has had an action-packed – however largely profitable – marketing campaign for Karl Burke and homeowners Middleham Park Racing having raced and not using a break since November 2022.

Cracking end to the Sprint!

Navello (25/1) will get there on the road within the well-known five-furlong dash to land the Aston Martin “Sprint” Handicap for @gbougheyracing and @Atzenijockey 👏 #DerbyFestival

Though there can be a small fear about him being on the go for therefore lengthy, the £17,500 buy has solely completed exterior of the primary 4 on three events in 14 runs.

This streak of consecutive runs features a second to Annaf at Lingfield in January, a short-head second within the Epsom Sprint, and a second within the Listed Metropolis Partitions Stakes at York in July, all of which is sweet type.

Silky Wilkie returned to the monitor after a 27-day break on Thursday for a Racing League handicap over 5 furlongs, a race during which he ran promisingly to complete fourth when not requested too many questions.

His activity in handicap firm off a mark of 108 was powerful two days in the past, so in the present day’s Listed Beverley Bullet ought to be extra to his liking and hopefully, the hardy four-year-old can present them a clear pair of heels.
